30 Kitchen islands with tables, a simple but very clever combo

Every room has a central element that defines it. For the kitchen, that element is almost every time the kitchen island. It’s the piece that brings everything together, the piece that sits in the center and maintains an organized décor. The role of the kitchen island is not very specific. It’s a multifunctional element and it serves as a wonderful and practical storage piece with shelves and drawers but it’s also a great work surface.

Sometimes the kitchen island is also used as a breakfast area or table. Because of that, a special type of design has been developed. It’s a kitchen island and it’s also a table. These two pieces have been combined to create a very clever and functional mix that beautifully complements any kitchen. And just like in the case of any other piece of furniture, this type of kitchen island and table combo also comes in a variety of designs, shapes, sizes and colors.
